Take iPhoto as an example. Not only does it store photos and video clips, organize photos into albums, events, places, and faces, it also gives you plenty of online sharing options with a click or two. And it does all that for free.
So, why would you pay for an app with less functionality?
The Road Less Traveled
I’ve often heard it said that ‘the road less traveled is often less traveled for a very good reason.’ There’s a reason Apple’s iPhoto app doesn’t have much competition. It’s good. It’s free.
Enter Poster, a Mac app that dares to do some of what iPhoto does, and more, especially in the category of online posting.
Hence, the name Poster, the app which uploads photos and videos to Flickr, SmugMug, and Facebook, and does it with more features and functions than you’ll find in iPhoto.
For example, Poster can post photos and videos to Flickr, create and choose sets and groups, tag photos and people, and even moderate photos.
As another example, Poster can post to your Facebook profile or other pages you administer, which goes beyond what iPhoto can do.
Poster’s user interface is all Mac; intuitive, functional without being cluttered with controls.
Poster also dares to go where iPhoto does not and uploads photos and videos to SmugMug. You can create and manage galleries from within Poster, too.
This is an app that’s made for the Mac user who posts plenty of photos and videos online, and who is frustrated with the limitations in iPhoto. In fact, it even plays nice-nice with plugins for iPhoto and Aperture; perfect for exports photos.
Photos can be resized and rotated but you won’t find additional photo enhancement tools, similar to those in iPhoto and Aperture. Poster is well done, Mac-like in look and feel, and worth of Mac users whose photography and videography lives online.
